Health & Safety
Safety is a core value at New Gold and our people are of paramount importance to us. Like all of our operations, the Mesquite Mine places the utmost importance on health and safety and is committed to ensuring all members of the operating team return safely to their respective families at the end of each work day. We strive to continuously improve our health and safety standards.
Mesquite accident and injury frequency have decreased significantly since mining operations restarted in 2008. An employee awards program has also been instituted to recognize excellence in regulatory compliance, health and wellness, injury prevention and attendance.
